it is about why the seder is so long.

it is a really good point.

eat first

The best way to avoid that hungry "when are we gong to eat?" problem is to eat a good filling meal before candle lighting time and also drink enough. Then you will enjoy the Seder much more. Never go into YomTov (Or Shabbos either) hungry or thirsty. Shabbos is a little different because you should have a good appetite for the Shabbos meal but you could still eat an apple or cake or something before candle lighting and certainly drink. Every minute of Shabbos is supposed to be "oneg" (joy) and if you're platzing away waiting for Kiddush, that's not oneg.

But before the Seder eat a good meal.

Every year, your video brings tears

I want to thank everyone involved in bringing these video's to life. They are inspiring and beautiful. I'm just sad that I have not learned these truths from childhood.

Not everyone has Family or Children

Not everyone has family and not everyone has children so the passing it on from "our parents or grandparents" does not work for one size fits all. I am not single but if I was and especially if I was yearning to be married w/children, this would be painful. I find that with a number of Jewish talks, the assumption that we all have and are part of a family on Jewish holidays especially a loving family that we want to with needs to be addressed. That assumption can do just the opposite of what is intended and that is to cause pain and rejection. The message in general, not just in this video needs to be sensitive and inclusive to all. When someone is outside of a large Jewish Community my experience is that it is very easy not to feel included. I am not sure it is everyone's favorite holiday. In Frum communities, it is easier to find a seder but in reform and conservative communities my experience is that people are much more exclusive. If I don't do the seder or have the funds to attend a synagogue seder, I won't be invited to anyone's house. It is not that I am disliked. It is that a seder is a lot of work and not everyone is into doing the "mitzvot" of guests. I have had people in large Jewish communities say to me you must have lots of invitations and I don't say anything. It hurts when people don't ask or try tol ask to come when it is not a Frum environment. I think it is important to recognize that not everyone has places to go. I am fortunate because I can make Pesach and make it meaningful. There are still many people that I would have liked to have invited that I don't have room for and I really do think it would be nice one day to do the "Seder Project", like the Shabbas Project and try to focus on just "one guest" especially in reform and conservative households. .

Let all who are hungry, come and ...

We can't make people do things.
If you just ask, i know a place would be set for you.
To my knowledge all Jewish communities have placement for those looking. Though I would be hard pressed to think that reform or conservative would take advise from anyone out side their circle, no matter how good.
Next year check around ask, if you can't find a list of Seders, walk into any shul, with certainty they will find you a place, will to warm and inviting.

(95) joyce levitt, March 29, 2013 1:16 PM

That was amazing!!!!!!

It makes so much more sense to me why we do what we do and why it takes so long. Having this explanation before we start, will make all the difference in the world next year when we begin our seder. thank you.

Tiferet, April 21, 2014 9:13 PM

Let's eat. But hopefully not too much.

It helps to have the kids (and us) eat in the afternoon so that they aren't sooooo hungry (during the Tefilllah and waiting for the meal. A Chabbadnik told me that it is D'Oreitah that we eat a meal in the afternoon before Shabbat.

That was one of the most wonderful videos I have seen. Me, as an orthodox jew never really appreciated the "chashivus" of the seder. Well, now I will go into the night just a little bit different. AMAZING!

(82) ilyse, April 21, 2011 8:24 PM

Thank you!

Thank you. I plan on sharing this with my husband who feels compelled to expedite the seder because everyone wants dinner. I want to savor the seder and contemplate a bit. But maybe that's because I am never starving because I've been tasting my wonderful food. I think next year I will have small matzah ball appetizers for people to grab as they come in to the house so THEY won't be starving throughout the seder. I also wish that the fact that it is a week night didn't set the tone for when people want to be done! Thank you for your wise words on the matter.

HIllel, April 24, 2011 1:43 AM

no matza balls needed

Ilyse: The best innovation to my Seder nights in the past decade comes from a Seder I attended at my rabbi's house when we lived in northern Virginia in 1999. What his wife did was this: As soon as we said the blessing "borei pri ha'adama" on the parsley or whatever vegetable appears on the Seder plate, she brought out a tray of fruits -- pineapple, cantaloupe, honeydew, strawberries -- that, like the parsley, is grown on the ground and is covered by this blessing. That way, people can munch on the fruit from that point forward, and no one need have any "I'm hungry" issues prior to the dinner. I've used that tip every Seder since, and it works like a charm by keeping everyone focused on the Seder and not the food. Of course, you certainly can use vegetables, too. Best of luck next year!

(81) Jake, April 21, 2011 12:41 AM

Fantastic Video. I wish I had received it BEFORE passover so that I could send it to the whole family.

(75) Softwords, April 18, 2011 10:19 AM

"Never Forget" or Not "Never Forget"; What is the TRUE meaning?!

Charlie - It is very nice that you desire to inspire others, however, I will pose a question to you that a relative asked at the Passover table one time and if you think about it, he's right. Therefore, based on the strength of his argument we are forced to reexamine the functionality of the Haggadah. His question was as follows: "If the purpose of the Haggadah is to tell over the history of the Exodus, why did the authors of the Haggadah waste some much time on insignificant statements (such as the 4 sons, the Rabbis of Bnei Brak, etc) instead of just telling over the story of the Exodus from start to finish?" In truth, the Haggadah appears to be skimming over the story with brief references and concentrating more on the legal aspects of the evening's Jewish requirements. This being so, we need to reassess what is the functionality of the Haggadah. It is clearly not as most would say (paraphrasing), "Never Forget"! It is clearly not an ancient version of "Remember the Holocaust" . So what is it then? I have an answer, but prefer not to spoon feed people. Go and search! The true reason is much more meaningful than just remembering that we were slaves to Pharaoh in Egypt and now are free men. "Seek and you will find". Chag Kosher V'Sameach (Everybody should have a wonderful and meaningful Pesach!)

It's great to really remember WHY we do this each year. This is a wonderful production and we have been sending is along to all our friends and family. It is inspiring us to make this year's - and we hope every year's - seders truly special. Thank you. P.S. My brother, Sam Newman (alov hashalom), was also a Harlan Fiske Stone Scholar from Columbia - you must all get the award for being such great speakers!

(62) ross, April 13, 2011 7:04 PM

Oh, THAT'S what takes so long.

When you have family that actually experienced slavery and horrific oppression, it makes the seder that much more real. Sometimes survivers reserve this night as their one time each year where they open up about their past. Great job.

(60) Antonio Perez, April 12, 2011 4:30 PM

The Seder: What Takes So Long?

Tieing the Passover to HaShoah really made it real to me. We know what happened in Europe and it can't be denied, that makes Passover and the Exodus so real to me. It is not a tradition or a story, it happened and the Seder makes it real to us as it was to that first generation of Moses. From generation to generation for thousands of years. HaShem is so wise!

(59) jake, April 12, 2011 4:17 PM

love it!

we haven't had a seder in a while but this reminds me of why it is necessary. Thank you, Charlie.

(58) Josh, April 12, 2011 2:27 PM

Exactly! It is a mitzvah to rush the meal. Why the chet violation?

Taking long is the exact opposite of what the meal is supposed to be. You are to eat with loins girded and wlaking stick in hand. Matzah is all about the rush. If you really want to remember Pasover. Eat fast as if your life depended on it. Choose life. Smah already! If you relax, you miss the point. Pharaoh would have got you.

Non-Jew seeks to remind his progeny of holocaust

My grandfather has photographic documentation of his efforts (and those of the 36th Division) at Dachau and nearby subcamps in 1945. To retain in remembrance the irrefutable heritage he established, and to prevent or overpower future atrocities is the resolution of me and mine. Thank you for reminding me of the value of preserving culture.

(56) Adele, April 9, 2011 2:26 PM

This is such an important film. Let's try to remember to make these accessible for Deaf people. I'd love my Deaf daughter and her friend to see this, but she wouldnt be able to hear it. Let's try to have these captioned next time, and remember the Jewish Deaf. Thank you. Happy Pesach.

(49) Sarah Hirsch, April 6, 2011 2:31 AM

I wish the seder were that way for me

I have never been to a seder where there was any real discussion about anything. Last year, I went to a seder at the rabbi's house having watched this video, and I came with thoughts and wonderings. No one had any interest in what I had to say. The only people whose thoughts were given any time were those who had Talmudic questions about the minutiae of the seder. The "answers" from the rabbi all sounded programmed. I was so disappointed, because I came ready to be excited about the Exodus, and I left not wanting to go to another seder. This year, I will make my own seder, by myself - since I have no family - just so that I can care about what happened. It's sad that I have to do it alone, but I'd rather do it alone than sit through a programmed show of Talmudic debate.

Hershel, April 6, 2011 7:57 PM

Sarah is right

Too many people get caught up with the minutiae of the Seder. They miss the beauty of the forest because they're so busy looking at the insects. Our Exodus was a monumental event and the Seder should be an exciting experience for all. We should discuss it with passion and excitement as if we were leaving Egypt. We often make it boring. Don't give up Sarah. There are people out there who do it right. Make an effort and find them.

I have always looked forward to and enjoyed the Pesach seder. Yet, I have always had this question deep down that was never answered. Why does Maggid have to be so long? Or at least, why cant we eat first and then everyone would enjoy it so much more! I have always wondered. Until now. Thank you for this video! It has finally answered my question and I am looking forward even more to the seder this year!!

My family was not victm od the Soah. Instead, we suffer on a hands of the Inquisition. Here in Brazil, (and all Portuguese/Spanish colones) the families were forced to live in a criptjudiasm. So jewish culture started to fade among these families. Nowadays, most of these families nor even know what is judaism. If you compare, the shoah and Why this happened?

Thank you

Thanks for reminding me. My grandparents were Holocaust survivors too and resettled in Hungary after the war. When keeping Torah became difficult under Communist rule my grandparents escaped Hungary, on Pesach! I was lucky to have my Bobbie & Zeidy relate their personal exodus at the Seder every year. Hearing their experiences at the Seder brought a very personal and poignant touch to the story of Yetzias Mitzrayim. Now I tell my children about their great Bubbie & Zeidy in the hope that they too will take from the Seder strong personal recollections and values. Again, thanks for reminding us how important it is that every generation remembers who we are, where we come from and where we're headed. Chag Kosher V'Sameach.

AMAZING!

Mr Harary has brought my Jewishness alive in a way I never dreamed possible. It makes sence, it gives beauty and meaning to my life... and helps me keep believing GD is out there - He's real! Thank you! And that you to aish for your amazing work, I was almost a statistic of intermarrage and I cannot thank you enough.

And you shall tell your children....

Excellent reminder to help us focus on the seder. We have an important mission to pass on the history of our ancestors to our children. We are an important link in the chain.

another good reason on why NOT to intermarry

Passover sure makes another good reason why Jews shouldn't intermarry. Otherwise, the story wouldn't as likely be passed down from one generation to the other and so forth.

Lacking

I've loved the previous videos from Mr. Harary. This one, though, left me hanging. He tells us to make the seder real, which is great. He just doesn't tell us how to do it. Too bad, he didn't go all the way.
